Hi everyone, this is my first project posted here. I have enjoyed looking through what others have done or are working on!

Kit: WBH9 Art Deco Bugs Bunny by Designer Stitches (Limited Edition, discontinued)
Fabric: 16ct Cream Aida
Threads: DMC
Stitch Count: 151 x 218
Began: 11th Dec 2009

Original Pattern

This is my latest work in progress that I've been eyeing up for a while now. I hope it could look quite good framed in my (one day) home theatre room.

It hasn't been totally straightforward. The kit being quite old had aida which was so badly creased that I just bought new aida to use instead. My kit also has a misprinted chart, missing some symbols in squares where there are definitely stitches. Thankfully I could figure out the missing stitches from the kit cover photo.

Even using the larger side bars for my frame there is still not quite enough stitching area (only by about 10 rows top and bottom) so I will have to roll it up and down which I obviously prefer not to. Will do the very top and bottom last to minimise the stitch squashing if I can.

Dec 15th: This is the first photo I have:

Dec 20th: I've got some of the more "interesting" part done of Bugs in the middle but will leave the huge amount of backstitch to the very end. Next will be the (half stitched) background...

Jan 13th. Yay, finished! Was slow going to finish between getting the flu and struggling with the DMC metallic threads until the Thread Heaven arrived anyways. And soooo much backstitch. Still, delighted with the end result...

Thanks everyone for your kind comments. I've added the latest progress pictures above. I'm not quite sure about how to do the back stitch yet. Normally the kits I have backstitch is done over as many stitches as it takes to do a straight line. However this has such long straight lines particularly around the border I think it would be more sensible to do it over a certain number of stitches instead?

Hello, I bought this one some time ago to do for my young son, i had to go and buy the thread seperately and whilst doing so lost the key so although i have all the colours i dont know which should be which on the actual map. If you could send me the key or upload a picture of it so that i know which symbol represents which colour that would be most appreciated.

Thanks, Andy.

Here you go Andy. Sorry I don't have a scanner so had to take a digital photo instead. Note there are a few symbols which are very similar, like the horizontal dashes (3033 & 844), the vertical dashes (415 & 3799) and the plus signs (647 & 451/453). In all these cases the slightly thicker one is the latter option, and you can usually figure it out by looking at where you are on the design. It is poor chart design using such similar symbols though.
